Excerpt From Newsletter
For forty years, the angry fire of God’s wrath danced upon the Earth in parabolic pantomime as the “angel” Who inhabited that billowing “pillar of cloud” showed the sons of Israel “The Way” they were to “walk.” The astounding presence of that fiery mushroom cloud towered over them as their constant companion from the time Israel, the Firstborn Son of God, parabolically entered the realm of the dead and passed through the Sea of Reeds until He arose from the dead in the parabolic pantomime in which Israel, the resurrected Firstborn Son of God, “went up” from the Jordan River to inherit the Promised Land (see The Passover Parable). Yet what are we to make of all that parabolic imagery? How does it relate to the situation we face today—a situation in which we can only watch and wait until that cunningly deceptive little man finally rebuilds the Temple in Jerusalem and ushers in the destruction of the man Adam. (See “That’s Why He’s Called AntiChrist!” The Voice of Elijah®, April 1992; The AntiChrist; and The Advent of Christ and AntiChrist.) The answer to that question may surprise you.
To understand the message of the Scriptures, one needs to know that God orchestrated the entire life of the Man Jesus Christ as a parabolic pantomime—a parabolic depiction—of the biblical history of the man Israel. (See “They Got God at a Fire Sale Price (and a Whole Lot More Than They Bargained For)—Part II,” The Voice of Elijah®, July 1999; “There Is Nothing More Amazing Than Dead Men Walking (in ‘The Way’),” The Voice of Elijah®, January 2000; “Questions & Answers,” The Voice of Elijah®, July 2000; “Questions & Answers,” The Voice of Elijah®, October 2000.) That is, embedded in Matthew’s record of the life of Christ is a parabolic chronicle of events which Moses and the other Prophets of Israel tell us befell (or would befall) Jacob and his descendants. However, God had long since made sure that the biblical history of the man Israel was also a parabolic pantomime. In it, He chronicles the entire history of the man Adam. So the biblical account of what Jesus said and did parabolically depicts the history of Adam and all his descendants from the day of Adam’s creation to the time when the fire of God’s wrath finally removes the descendants of Adam from the face of the Earth (Zeph.1:2–3).
